First published in 1895, this volume contains a series of arguments against the idea that the world is round. The belief that the Earth is flat and not a globe existed in many ancient civilisations, but we now know that this is not true. However, even today there are those who believe in a flat earth, just as there was when ideas of a spherical earth were relatively new. Within this book, the author explains why these new ideas of the planet as a globe are absurd, with interesting examples and explanations as to precisely why. Highly recommended for those with an interest in Flat Earth theory and the history of astronomy. Contents include: "Ships 'Going Down!'", "How Much Loner Will it Be?", "Absurd Theory!", "No Proof to be Had", "When the Man Has Time!", "Earth A Globe", "The Scientific Wager of 1870", "Our Opponents Ways and Means", etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this book today in an affordable, modern edition complete with the original text and artwork.
